Hello John,

To edit your site, you just need to login back to your account. You can go here: http://yola.com and enter in your login details in the top-right hand corner.

You can certainly add Google Analytics if you wish! Here's a tutorial to guide you through the process.

However, an easier alternative may be to just use our Yola Site Traffic to view your stats! Here's how:

1. Log in to your Yola account.
2. Click on 'Site traffic' in the menu on the left-hand side.
3. You will see a graph which shows you the number of visitors to your site per day.
If you have a Yola Free or Bronze account, you will be able to view the total number of visits over the past 7 days. If you have a Silver account, you will be able to view the total number of visits and unique visitors by day over the last 30 days.

For more information, please read this post: Site traffic statistics are now available!.

Hi John,

Just login to Yola and then click on "Open" next to the website that you want to edit.



Hope this helps.

Once you edit it, to get the updated site on to the web, just click on the big green "Publish to the Web" button at the top of the Yola SiteBuilder.

Hi again Nathan, Thanks for getting back to me :)
Yes i already tried that but it comes up with a pop up saying publish to the web...... Which is fine but then it wants a domain name blah blah blah or breate one or if you own one make sure its pointing at yola !!!!!!!!!
Am i being funny here as all i want to do once ive updated it is to bloody publish it to the address that i published it with Yola in the first place!!!
Seriously tho why does it have to be this confusing to do such a simple thing???
Sorry for the rant but im at the end of the road with this!!
Many thanks
John

When it pops up with that, just choose the Yola sub domain option and type in the sub domain that you want. If you bought a domain from Yola, you should be able to publish to it.

Hi John,

Just wanted to pop on and say that menu should only appear if your website is not already published to the web. Can you please reply with your published site address (URL) so we can take a closer look for you?
